“We disagree with those who believe that homosexuality is a benign alternative to heterosexuality, but disagreement about the normalizing of homosexual behavior is not hate; it is simply disagreement.”

This comes via Todd Starnes of Fox News, and if true, it’s clearly the latest attempt by the prevailing culture – with the U.S. government carrying the water in this case – to marginalize the Word of God by demanding denunciation of its pronouncements on homosexuality. Starnes says he was contacted by several members of the Army, including both active duty and reservists, who attended a briefing last week at Fort Shelby in Mississippi and were told that the American Family Association should be regarded by the Army as a “domestic hate group” every bit as much as the Ku Klux Klan, the Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam.
A soldier who attended the briefing contacted me and sent me a photograph of a slide show presentation that listed AFA as a domestic hate group. Under the AFA headline is a photograph of Westboro Baptist Church preacher Fred Phelps holding a sign reading “No special law for f***.”
American Family Association has absolutely no affiliation with the controversial church group known for picketing the funerals of American servicemembers.
“I had to show Americans what our soldiers are now being taught,” said the soldier who asked not to be identified. “I couldn’t just let this one pass.”
